    Im looking at either purchasing a set of older plans mid 80s vintage, for a fiberglass sport fisher (36ft) or having a new set drawn up.

    Im hoping someone here can give me a rough idea of:

    1) how much old plans would be worth and
    2) how much roughly it would be to have a set drawn up.

    These plans are quite detailed and not just thrown togheter and are not boat kit type plans. They are production ready and a new set would also need to be of this level of design and detail.
